Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock) has had some well-known romances. The WWE legend and Hollywood megastar has also had a few lesser-known relationships.
Le Grand has been married twice. Johnson was 18 when he met his first wife, Dany Garcia. In the meantime, she was 22 years old. They were both students at the University of Miami. After dating for a few years, they got married in 1997. However, they divorced about a decade later.
In 2006, Johnson met his second wife, Lauren Hashian, while filming The game plan. They married nearly 13 years later. Along with Garcia and Hashian, the WWE legend has also dated a few other women. However, many fans don’t know much about these romances.
Here are three relationships you didn’t know Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock) had in real life.
#3. Dwayne Johnson dated the girl next door
At the age of 10, Dwayne Johnson apparently entered his first romantic relationship. At the time, the WWE legend was living with his family in Hawaii. He then started dating his next-door neighbour.
In his autobiography The Rock says… Johnson revealed some details about his relationship with his first girlfriend.
“I was living in Hawaii when I met my first girlfriend. I was ten, Lisa was thirteen. It’s a big difference, of course, and you might be wondering how we got to ride first. But she was my next-door neighbor, and we had to be good friends before anything carnal happened. year” he wrote.
Although his relationship with Lisa taught Johnson a thing or two about girls, their romance eventually ended.
#2. Dwayne Johnson dated an 18-year-old when he was 14
After his relationship with Lisa ended, Dwayne Johnson dated another older girl. He was 14 when he started dating 18-year-old Maria. At the time, The Great One believed she was the love of his life.
In his autobiography, The Rock says… the WWE legend revealed that Maria was sweet and caring.
“I’ve always been attracted to older women, and they’ve often reciprocated. That’s one of the benefits of being a precocious bloomer. (…) Maria wasn’t just a acquaintance or conquest. She was, at the time, the love of my life. She was HER! Maria was a senior in high school. I was in first grade. Like any fourteen-year-old boy who fidgets awkwardly at dawn of adulthood can tell you, it’s normally a fatal age difference, especially in the cliquaire world of high school. But Maria was a wonderfully kind and caring girl. A very innocent girl, and I was…well…I was THE MAN. Or so I thought,” he wrote.
When Johnson and his family moved to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, he maintained a long-distance relationship with Maria.
#1. Dwayne Johnson dated two girls at the same time
After moving from Hawaii to Bethlehem, Dwayne Johnson and Maria haven’t officially separated. Despite this, the WWE legend has started dating another girl, Tina, in his new town.
Before his prom, Johnson found himself in a difficult situation, as he explained in his autobiography. He had previously promised Maria that she would be his date for his prom when he was his date at his prom. Meanwhile, he had another girlfriend in Bethlehem who expected to be his date.
Instead of telling Tina the truth, he claimed that his cousin was coming to Bethlehem and that she would be his date for the ball. Tina had no problem and went to the ceremony with friends.
At prom, however, Johnson went back and forth between her two girlfriends. Luckily for him, he didn’t get caught. However, everything went downhill a few months later.
“I found out later that my prom had been a serious withdrawal from the bank of karma. And the debt had to be paid off. I pushed my credit limit to the max by inviting Maria to spend the been with my family in Bethlehem– after learning that Tina would be spending her summer in Cocoa Beach, Florida. After a while, I didn’t know who I was cheating on. (…) It went on like that for a few months, with me acting like a complete asshole with these two girls (…) Then, during one of Maria’s last nights in Bethlehem, my luck turned,” he wrote.
While Maria was at Johnson’s, Tina called. Unfortunately for The Great One, it was his Hawaiian girlfriend who answered the phone. The two then discovered that the 17-year-old was dating them simultaneously.
“It deteriorated from there (…) I quickly and blindly embraced the impossible task of fixing everything. I spoke with Tina on the phone, then I spoke with Maria. I tried to convince them both that I really was still a good guy and that I cared about them deeply [which actually wasn’t a lie, although I know It’s probably hard to believe]. Somehow I managed to avoid making Tina or Maria a mortal enemy, but things were never the same,” he added.
Both girls broke up with Dwayne Johnson. He then spent his final weeks in Bethlehem without a girlfriend before flying off to college, where he met his first wife.
